THAT’S THE WAY TO DO THE COM­RADES

Athletics Weekly - - News -

STEVE WAY pro­duced the best per­for­mance by a Bri­tish run­ner at the Com­rades Marathon last week­end since Mick Or­ton of Tip­ton Har­ri­ers won the race back in 1972.

Way, the UK M40 marathon record-holder, took third place in an event won by Bong­musa Mthembu of South Africa.

The his­toric 56-mile race this year took place on the ‘down’ course from Pi­eter­mar­itzburg to Dur­ban, with an en­try field of 21,273 tak­ing on the chal­lenge.

Way scythed through the field in the clos­ing miles to im­prove on his ninth place from last year, which was recorded on the ‘up’ course.
